for Weir to shave off that ridiculous beard! It's been several years now, and I absolutely hate it.

Now that Furthur is sounding more like the GD than other post-Garcia lineups, I think it might be time to start looking more like themselves of old. Bobby shaves, and Phil finds his red, white and blue sweatcuffs and tie-dye from the '87 tours.

Please join in my request.

It's a good thing Phil didn't keep his beard from back in the '70s:

Well, I prefer the scrawny, twig arm Bobby...sans facial hair of course, but he has to lose the bulging veins as well.

What say he to a twinkie diet, no work outs, and plenty of bics around?

He clearly has too much testosterone flowing in the very obvious veins of his...

Well, since I usually have a beard of one sort or another, this I do not mind; but, I do very much prefer the young, youthful, pale thin Bobby...when hanging out at the stage entrance to sneak in and see Kingfish in 75, the "ladies in waiting" (band mates, wives, girlfriends) of the stage players and roadies and such were all having a smoke outside, and talked with us "juveniles" and it was clear they all thought Bob was the nicest of the bunch. I know we've heard a variety of things hereabouts, but they, for what that's worth, genuinely thought of him as a nice guy. There were 4-5 of these gals; very attractive (I was only 17), and very nice to us punks...shortly afterward, the head roadie let us in the back door.

In truth, though I like the younger Bob a bit better (I just think all the SF music types looked "good" as rail thin pasty white sorts), I REALLY loved Jerry and his striped pants in the 67-68 period...sans beard.

Nice photo. Is that Monterey?

And I prefer Jerry with the 1972 beard.

That is DEFINITELY Monterey and I know the photographer and where you can buy the photo as it was part of a show I helped curate in December (also featuring the original artwork for cover of Feats Don't Fail Me Now). If interested in same, contact the Alternative Cafe (I'll be there on Thursday and Friday for latest vernissage/opening; it's where I spend the bulk of my free time):

It's probably getting to see his sister in law that gets his testosterone pumping.

BETTER FRY !

..... and for your reading pleasures enjoy this hijack :

Prequel:

Not this again. Not again. It is always the same. I want it to stop. I can not start it no matter how hard I try to. We have no control. I try to start it. I really do. Just so it can be finished sooner, and finished on my terms, and yet. And yet nor can I stop this. This never ending chain of events, always the same yet, tedium ensues; it is constant in its inconsistencies, different in its details but always the same story. I have seen it more times than I can count but every time it is different. The river of our life flowing past us. It looks the same on the outside, the same eddies and flows, but if you watch there are little discrepancies that can be seen with a close look. Yet these small differences are not enough; our life is incommensurate to the lives of the free people. We are trapped here. We can not divert the stream, this river of life. It is drowning us, we can not abate it. We do not want to.

“No don’t. I’m sorry.” They all say. They do not mean it. They never do. I do not mean that. They are kind and loving…they hurt me. Why do they always hurt me? They are not here now. I never hurt them. What about the first time we met them? What about then? “That was an accident.” You say. We are not sorry you are. That was a mistake. That was an accident. I never meant to, you know that I never meant to. You made me. You meant to. You, with your controlling and fighting and your lust for destruction and pain. Always you. Always you cast me down, when raising me up, to rule beside you, to be happy, would be easier. You’re spiteful for no reason. I want you gone.

I am gone. We are apart. But I am coming closer ever second now. The child is bringing me. The one we saw yesterday. The child will reunite us. We will repay him.

Gone? Yes. You are gone.

Empty.

Nothing left. But me. Just me.

The more I look at it, the more I like it. I do think it is good. I wish you were here to see it. I like it. The time spent. The time lost. Always time. Time is the answer. Its always time. But I have no question. Soon you say. I need a question. Can you be my question? Where are we going? Somewhere. Home. Back to you. We’ll meet some nice people again. Yes, people are nice. We’re nice. People are nice. We’re nice? yes. We are. But what about when we first met them? They cowered. We cowed them. You did. Not me. Not we. You. No. We did. We both meant to then. We do think it’s good. We like it.

wait.

Who is that? Is that the boychild? He is bringing us with him. We are getting closer now. Closer together. He is getting closer to us.

I am so thirsty.

Sequel:

“Where were you yesterday? And last night?”

I don’t like the questions. I think I may escape again.

My mother usually gets rather emotional when I go away for a little time, time to be apart from this world and part of another, and just escape to a realm that only I am in. Considering all that she’s been through I should go easier on her. Some people were never meant to manage children. And yet she thinks she’s doing a good job. Not so. At least from my perspective. I just want to get away. Run. Go somewhere people weren’t allowed. Unless I allowed them. I suppose that I would make a pretty good emperor or a dictator or something like that. I think I’d like that. Although with the power would come enemies. I suppose I would like to be a modern Jesus. Just without the whole sacrifice thing. Or the helping. So I guess I’d like to be a super villain. But if you ever read any of those comics you have to wonder, how is it that every villain loses? I feel bad for them. They are probably just as confused as I am. I’d like to think having special powers would make things easier, but I’m pretty sure that it would just complicate things.

My life is complicated. Most people who see what I do and how I do it wouldn’t think so. But there in lies my genius. I am constantly lowering everyone’s standards that they set for me. I’m thinking next year I’ll have a “revelation” or some such and just get way smarter. So my teachers will think that I’ve improved when really I’ll have just started thinking. I guess that I’m a little bit of a super villain myself.

What would make someone choose to be a super villain you ask? Well, having fist hand experience I do believe that I can tell you. Super villains such as me wander. Lost. We are cast adrift from society, well, any society but our own. We are ostracized. Most people don’t realize this but us super villains are due quite a lot of thanks. We make the superheroes look like Jesus come again, if only in comparison.

All the other kids at school, working hard and toiling for grades, while I’m just out to make them look better. Really they should be thanking me, instead of hurting me. I know that Jeffery is smarter than me. And stronger. And faster. And meaner. That doesn’t mean he has to flaunt it. And flaunt it until he makes my nose bleed. He’s good at punching, my superman.

Every super villain has his secret hide out, his lair, and so I have mine. I can escape there. I’m the smartest person there. I’m the emperor, the villain, the martyr, the saint, the antichrist, and even superman. I’m the evilest and the best at the same time there.

I can make up what ever I want. The scenery, my friends, and everything.

I’m the most popular kid in my hide out.

The red white and blue wristbands. That's awesome. Also the skin tight tie dyed with his beer belly hanging.
